Conical strainer is sometimes known as temporary strainer or witch hat strainer. In the past, these are used temporarily until a permanent strainer, such as basket or tee strainer can be used to replace it.
Conical strainers are relatively cheap and easy to manufacture. It is designed to be clamped in between two lengths of pipe. They are commonly used during commissioning where more debris can be expected.
The disadvantage is that in order to clean them, the section of pipe has to be removed. This is the reason why they are usually used temporarily until a permanent strainer, such as a basket or tee strainer can be built. In recent days however, they can be left there as long as the pipe does not get choked up.
